REALLY MASSIVE rally of the KKE in Athens sends a resounding message ahead of June 25 election

It was massive and spectacular. Thousands of Athenians, men and women of every age, workers, students, pensioners gathered on Wednesday evening in Syntagma Square to attend the central political rally of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE). 

Being by far the largest political gathering of all parties ahead of June 25th parliamentary elections, the pre-election rally of the KKE sent a resounding, hopeful message of unwavering struggle, for a 100% militant, popular opposition against the next anti-people government of New Democracy (ND) party.

The event was attended, among others, by KKE's candidate MPs in the region of Attica and members of the Central Committee. The rally opened with a song of solidarity towards the world's peoples, sending a special message of support to refugees and immigrants following the tragic shipwreck off Pylos a few days ago.

The opening speech was delivered by Kostadinka Kuneva, former MEP and candidate MP of the KKE in Athens 'A constituency.
